Liverpool and Newcastle on the trail of Brighton’s Caicedo replacement. After Moises Caicedo was announced as Chelsea’s record acquisition, the defensive midfielder merry-go-round continued, with Brighton & Hove Albion attempting to outbid other clubs for his services.
If there is one aspect of the Seagulls’ recent success that stands out, it is the strength of their hiring process as well as their distinct and dynamic playing style, which has made them the envy of the Premier League.
The departure of Graham Potter to Chelsea might have signalled the start of the end for their forward-thinking initiative, but Roberto De Zerbi took over, moved the team forward, and helped them achieve their best-ever finish last season.
The development is clear, and even after losing stars like Caicedo and Alexis MacAllister, one has the impression that they’ll manage magnificently still.

Carlos Baleba, a superb 19-year-old from Lille, is one of the players they are considering to replace the 21-year-old Ecuadorian.
A deal for around £15 million, or a small portion of the Caicedo sale price, is said to be possible, according to The Daily Mail. However, it appears that Brighton will face competition from both Liverpool and Newcastle as well as Serie A heavyweights AC Milan and Juventus, as well as Ligue Un rivals Monaco.
